WATCH: Five Funny Scenes from ‘A Christmas Story’

A Christmas Story
Warner Brothers

Ralphie, a young boy growing up, dreams of owning a Red Rider BB gun. He sets out to convince the world this is the perfect gift. But along the way, he runs into opposition from his parents, his teacher, and even good ‘ol Santa Claus himself. This classic Christmas flick is set in the 40s, but was filmed in 1983 in Cleveland, Ohio. Here are our top 5 favorite scenes.


Chinese Restaurant


"Fa-ra-ra-ra-ra, ra-ra-ra-ra!" Ever notice the duck is smiling?


Tongue Stuck to the Pole


In case you're wondering if this can actually happen, I learned the hard way. Go ahead, give it a shot!


Visit to Santa


When I was growing up I had two feelings about this scene. First, that is one messed up Santa. The other, why didn't I have one of those cool slides at my mall?




Do you remember swearing in front of your parents for the first time? It's brilliant and hysterical how this movie nails that experience.


The Leg Lamp


How influential is this scene? I can't tell you the last time I've pronounced the word "fragile" correctly. Fun fact: the man that the father chats with outside while admiring his prize is the director of the movie.
